Recognized as South Africa's foremost jazz pianist, Abdullah Ibrahim has a unique and dynamic compositional approach that successfully fuses universal and often seemingly disparate styles.

As though it was always destined to be, powerhouse trio The Bad Plus finds its fated fourth member in longtime friend and collaborator, saxophonist Joshua Redman. When Redman joined the trio as a special guest a few years back, a brilliant collaboration was born. Redman's melodic prowess blends seamlessly with the avant-garde populism of Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson, and David King, pushing the boundaries of jazz beyond all imagination. Metroland describes the supergroup best: "It's as though Redman is the long-lost fourth member of the group, just waiting to be snapped snugly into place. Imagine if the Beatles had spent the first decade of their career as a trio before adding Paul. It's like that."

Playing strings, horns, guitars, and percussion, Mother Falcon also works off a foundation of classical and chamber music, incorporating indie-rock elements and original vocal arrangements to create a full, stirring, and uplifting sound.

With a wild, powerful, and unbridled sound, Cimarrón lives up to the meaning of its name, untamed. The Grammy-nominated Colombian ensemble creates a fiery kind of music called música llanera and the fast-paced, triple-meter dance music joropo, played on harp, bandola, and cuatro and accompanied by bass, cajón, and maracas. The seven-piece all-star team of instrumentalists and singers, led by harpist and composer Carlos Rojas, astonishes audiences with its melodic and rhythmic virtuosity, percussive drive, and sabor Colombiano, Colombian flavor.
